The Ozark Mountain Daredevils

The Ozark Mountain Daredevils were among the more popular of mid-'70s country-rock outfits, slotting in chronologically and stylistically between the Eagles and Firefall. As exponents of '70s country-rock, the group rode a wave of success for five years on A&M Records and survived in some form into the 1990s, with a following just large enough to justify occasional record releases in their later years.

The sextet was formed in Missouri during the early '70s, consisting of guitarists John Dillon and Steve Cash, blues harpist/singer/guitarist Randle Chowning, drummer/guitarist/singer Larry Lee, keyboard player Buddy Brayfield, and bassist-vocalist Michael Granda, and was signed to A&M Records in 1973. Their first album, recorded under the supervision of producer Glyn Johns (who had also worked with the Eagles), was a critical success and yielded a Top 30 hit in "If You Want to Get to Heaven." A year later, they had the biggest hit in their history, "Jackie Blue," a mellow piece of country-rock that got to number three on the charts and still gets played occasionally as a '70s oldie. They had an ethereal edge to their sound and songs that made them especially appealing to college-age listeners during the middle of the decade. Their self-titled debut album set the tone for the group's next four releases, although by 1978's Don't Look Down, the sound was somewhat closer to country-pop than country-rock. Collegiate girls and their boyfriends could relate to them, and a sense of humor didn't hurt (their third LP, The Car Over the Lake Album had cover art featuring -- you guessed it -- a car over a lake).

Lee, Dillon (who later played with fellow Daredevil Steve Cash on the Waylon Jennings/Jessi Colter White Mansions concept album), and Chowning authored most of the songs that anyone knows ("Jackie Blue," "Following the Way I Feel," "Fly Away Home"). The group enjoyed success primarily on FM radio from 1973 until 1978, and were popular enough to justify the recording and release of a double-LP concert album -- they switched labels to CBS in 1980, losing Lee and Chowning by the end of the decade but picking up Buddy Emmons on steel guitar and Rune Walle on mandolin. The group ceased recording activity in the 1980s, but re-formed and began making records again in the mid-'90s, and there have been some surprising (and very rewarding) archival releases devoted to their work, including early sessions (in which they were at their purest country and bluegrass) and a reunion concert. All of their A&M library has reappeared on CD (some more than once, with upgrades), especially in Europe, and as of 2007 the group was still playing shows to enthusiastic audiences in and around Missouri. Brown died in a house fire in 2004 and the band played a memorial show in his memory in the fall of that same year, but after that the group went into semi-retirement, emerging to play shows now and then in different configurations before settling on a pretty consistent line up of John Dillon, Steve Cash, Michael Granda, Ron Gremp, Dave Painter, Kelly Brown, Bill Jones, Ruell Chappell and Nick Sibley. A new live album, Alive & Wild, was issued in 2011. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

It'll shine when it shines, fu------ great album!!!!
Music that just makes ya feel good
1973: on the 8 track in my 65 Dodge van..thanks OMD.

Mr. Powell, the sky, nothin' but a thin blue line. . .
....raise a little hell!
great band simple excellent lyrics
Started listening to OMD's back in the seventies. Saw them with The Doobie Brothers in Sioux City, Ia.back in the late seventies. Still one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Still brings back great memories whenever I hear them. Great Pandora station!
omahafastbal l
loved em - always wondered why they mixed this good music with the other s**t like disco f**king dj's
8 track player, 1976 F-150 with an overloaded 8' slide on camper travelling the west with my folks listening to OMD and the CDB. Takes me back everytime I hear them play.

Decent group of the times----sho r t lived.
yah if you want to get to heaven, you must raise a little hell- true statement
bar none. my favorite group
I LOVE Jackie Blue!!!!
I 'like'm'. They were a 'gap' band for me. When I try to remember moments of the time period and have the right 'vein, of thought going but can't re-call just what it is that made the experience have the meaning, I'll change from the Eagles, Dirt Band,or Creedence and there they will be. Not that I don't like the Gap Band but they're a 'gap' band for me.

The OMD's have given me many moments of great joy. I play guitar and my buddy plays harp, and we cover Standing On a Rock for our own amusement. If you filter out the pop-oriented stuff, these guys had a special group that any musician or fan could appreciate. The music never gets old. Rock on...
I gotta mountain of dreams to climb before I get to that house on the hill......
sir3russ
sittin' listen to ,on the day of ,her funeral,luv ya all
The best. The best.
Grew up listening to the Daredevils. Absolutely my favorite band of all time. I enjoy every music genre, and was raised with a musically talented family. I always found it tedious to pigeon-hole which genre of music Ozarks fit into. They are just a fantastic group with a versitile sound and lyrics that bring a rush of nostalgia. It is on my bucket list to see them in concert, but the only time they came to Idaho, I was living back East. My dad and brother got to see the show in Pocatello back in
love this band listen thier song whipoorwill

Missouri's Finest in their own right. From the eastern foothills, play it again.
Check this out, I went to a gay party back in the early seventies with a few friends and we didn't even know it was a gay party until we got there and this song was playing. We had a ball at that party even though I'm straight and I even brought that record and I still play it. Jackie Blue was on hit (smile).

I grew up in Southern Illinois during this time period. My brother turned me on to Ozark Mountain Daredevils around 1977, and I loved there style of music. I have moved to Colorado about 12 years ago. Just recently a old college (SIU-C)buddy and his wife came for a visit. We were parting hardly when they busted out The Ozark Mountain Daredevils. We laughed, sang, danced, drank, smoked and crowed like chikens! It was a magical time with the band once again. Thanks Don and Sue, and David!
There is a fantastic DVD called "Revival:Liv e at the Gillioz" that has interviews, history,conc e r t footage from their sold out weekend of shows at the gorgeous Gillioz Theatre and a special feature on the theater itself. All the favorites are included as well as several new songs. The lineup consisted of all the originals except Brayfield. The Daredevils are alive and well and busy in the Ozarks playing two big shows April 30 2010 for the 50th anniversary celebration of Silver Dollar City.

The Daredevils are still rocking. Saw them last year at the Wildwood Springs Lodge in Steeleville, MO. Great venue and great band. No genre can hold them.
thier nothing like the eagles or firefall. the excellent music all thier own and i love the eagles and firefalls music
I too learned to play the harmonica listening to there first album. Chicken Train is still one of my favorite songs. Long live OMD...
I learned to play harmonica by listening to the first OMD album. Thank you Steve Cash for the lessons!
I bought the first album when it came out, and have bought everything ASAP when I knew it was available. I now have completed my collection of all that is out plus extra after contacting the Ozarks website. The Ozarks sing and play of a way to life that all could achieve greater peace of mind from. They will always be a great part of my positive and caring soul! As a mountain/far m boy from the hills of Oregon spirit; their music talks to me.
I bought the 1st album in 73 .nobody I knew had heard of them. I liked the album cover!Thats how I found out about Steve Young too! Searching for gold, and found it!
i love these guys, always one of my favorites, just great tunes!

Listening to them really takes me down memory lane....my highschool days...good friends...tu b e tops and cut off overalls!... g o o d times! Gwennie
John Dillon sang many of the ballads that made any woman learn to love bluegrass music. He was remarkable with "Out on the Sea" a single from the Car Over the Lake Album. The original group of: John Dillon, Steve Cash, Larry Lee, Michael "Superman" Grande, Randy Chowning, and Buddy Brayfield are STILL THE ONE and ONLY "TRUE OZARK MOUNTaIN DareDEVILs" from geanee villani
carpenters.o l d b o o t s
the coolist by means of not noying how to live with the best of them there just to good

"It'll Shine when it Shines" was a favorite album of mine by Ozark Mtn.Daredevi l s .
The Ozarks trancend time, space, idiom, and genre.
It's just music, right? lol peace
